Movie Quote(s):
  • [about Mystique] Wolverine: She's good. Magneto: You have no idea.
  • Wolverine: Got any beer? Bobby: This is a school. Wolverine: So that's a no? Bobby: Yeah, that's a no. Wolverine: Well, do you have anything other than chocolate milk?
  • Nightcrawler: You know, outside the circus, most people were afraid of me. But I didn't hate them. I pitied them. Do you know why? Because most people will never know anything beyond what they see with their own two eyes. Storm: Well, I gave up on pity a long time ago. Nightcrawler: Someone so beautiful should not be so angry. Storm: Sometimes anger can help you survive. Nightcrawler: So can faith.
  • Mrs. Madeline Drake: [to Bobby] Have you ever tried... not being a mutant?
  • Rogue: Logan, come on. Let's go. Wolverine: Go, I'll be fine! Rogue: But we won't.
Movie Trivia:
  • Hugh Jackman worked with the same trainer who trained Angelina Jolie for the title role in Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001)
  • In the bar, the TV is showing a debate on the mutant situation. One of the panelists is "Dr. Hank McCoy," which is the real name of the blue-furred behemoth X-Man, Beast. The other, not seen but called "Dr. Shaw," is presumably Dr. Sebastian Shaw, the leader of the Hellfire Club in the comics.
  • On Yuriko's computer, the following files are listed: Guthrie (2) (Paige (Husk), and Samuel (Cannonball)); Harada, Keniucho (Silver Samurai); Kane, Garrison (Weapon X); LeBeau, Remy (Gambit); Lensherr, Eric (sic) (Magneto); Maddicks, Artie; Madrox, Jamie (Multiple Man); Xi'an Coy Mahn(Karma);Maximoff (2) (Wanda (Scarlet Witch), and Pietro (Quicksilver)); McTaggart, Kevin (Proteus); Moonstar, Danielle (Moonstar); Munroe, Ororo (Storm); McCoy, Hank (Beast); Callasantos, Maria (Feral); Cassidy (2) (Sean (Banshee), and Tom (Black Tom); Cheney, Lila; Creed, Victor (Sabretooth); DaCosta, Roberto (Sunspot); Dane, Lorna (Polaris); Drake, Bobby (Iceman); Dukes, Fred (Blob); Espinosa, Angelo (Skin), and; Gibney, kyle (Wild Child). On another screen there were a series of folders on the computer's desktop. These folders listed some well-known individuals or places from the X-Men universe, including: Omega Red (Russian mutant super soldier), Muir Island (Scottish mutant research facility), Project Wideawake (Codename for Sentinel project), Franklin Richards (son of Fantastic Four's Reed Richards and Sue Storm; born a mutant), and Cerebro (mutant tracking device created by Professor Xavier and Magneto). Closer inspection reveals that Stryker is keeping files on Pyro, Sabra, Dr Ceclia Reyes, Synch, Penance, Nightcrawler, his own Mystique and Lady Deathstrike, Copycat, Deadpool, Cyclops, Dazzler, the von Struckers, Jamie Braddock, David North, Sunfire, Boom Boom, Mimic, Dr Nathaniel Essex, Toad, Wolfsbane, Strong Guy, Kitty Pryde, Sauron, Forge... Curiously, there seem to be no files for Jean Grey or Wolverine, among others. There are also files on Alpha, Beta and Gamma Flights, Weapon X, Project Wide Awake (sic), Dept H, the Brotherhood, Graymalkin, Zero Tolerance, Massachussets Academy, Blackbird, the Danger Room, Legacy, Morlocks, Xavier's School, Omega Red, Cerebro, the Salem Centre, Franklin Richards, Kevin McTaggart, and of course Trash.
  • The name 'Franklin Richards' briefly appears on a computer monitor among government files relating to mutants. In the Marvel universe Franklin is the son of Reed Richards and Susan Storm of the Fantastic Four, he also happens to be a mutant.
  • Alan Cumming had to endure 10 hours of make-up to become Nightcrawler for the scene in the church (where his skin/make-up is shown from the waist up).
